With Northumbria not participating in the Kings competitions this year, it was difficult to predict how they would compare with the Newcastle team. The Stan Calvert Skiing event takes the format of a best of three races.
Northumbria have dominated the event for the part 5 years, meaning it was time for a Newcastle victory last Saturday. The Newcastle race squad, captained by Ryan Jamieson have been training hard on Tuesday nights and were delighted when their efforts paid off when they deservedly won the first two races, leaving no need for the third to be contested. Jamieson commented “Everyone was skiing really well and we had a comfortable lead over Northumbria – Lets hope we can win it next year!”
